Fine watchmaker and jewellery house Bulgari will continue its partnership with the New Zealand All Blacks Rugby team, a year after the alliance was first announced.
The brand said that the contract between the club and its watchmaking arm has been renewed for another two years.
It claims that the partnership came as an unexpected surprise when it was announced in 2011, but says that both sides were “united in their passionate quest for excellence”.
The partnership also produced the special edition Bulgari Endurer Chronosprint All Blacks watch, a DLC-coated watch with a decorated dial featuring a Maori tattoo design called the Koru, said to be a symbol of life, growth, strength, peace and renaissance.
Both Bulgari and the All Black rugby team were founded in 1884.
